Weekly Motivation Messageyou can do it

Do you have a mantra or role model or something else you use to focus yourself on your goals? What is it and how does it help you stay on track? I love this quote from Teddy Roosevelt: “Believe you can and you’re haflway there”

Let me share with you a few Beachbody product promotions for May: One is we’ve dropped the price of TAI CHENG Challenge Packs to $180 (regularly $205). And another is, we’re offering a FREE trial of Cordastra – an herbal supplement that boosts workout recoveries and energy levels. It’s a perfect compliment to a Tai Cheng workout. Cordastra contains powerful adaptogens used to improve immune system function, aid in post-workout recovery, and boost energy levels. Click to try Cordastra

A Standard to Follow

In times of war, armies old and new carry with them a standard to follow — usually a flag that signifies their country, their unit, or their branch of service. That standard acts as a rallying point, a symbol of who they are, and as a physical embodiment of their courage and determination.

In other times of our life, we may lack such a physical standard. We have no flag to follow, and no bugle will send us commands or instructions.

And yet, now as much as ever, we need those standards to rally to. As the world’s societies change, we may be caught up in the great rush of change and swept off course, unless we have a standard to rally towards and use as a goal to achieve or a destination to travel to.

Whether it be a goal that we set ourselves, or an ideal that is held up by a leader, having a standard to rally to, even if it isn’t a physical flag like in times of war, is important to keep us on track. Those standards — goals and desires — help keep us aiming toward the rallying point that we need to aim at.

On the battlefield, with the smoke and dust of war in the air, the clash of fighters and the smell of the battle raging around you, it’s easy to lose track of direction and bearings. In our lives, with the challenges of everyday life, layoffs, sickness, financial setbacks, and the problems of a changing society, it’s also easy to lose track of where you are. Having a clear-cut goal and standard to work for allows you to bring yourself back to the right roads, move quickly towards your standard, and put yourself back on track with a minimum of fuss and bother.

Moreover, as a person with a standard to follow, no matter what that standard may be composed of, you will find others rallying around you, following your lead, asking for your advice. They soon find themselves using you as a standard and a rallying point.

Look toward the standard and follow it to your future.
